Finally! After years of trying to get back here and do it. I was on top by 8:00am and hiked straight through a herd of Elk!
The one young Stag of the herd came to within 15 feet of me!! It was unbelievable. A moment I will not forget.

Mountain Jim

We did the 1st ascent of a variation on Blitzen Ridge.

We climbed the lower "Y" couloir for about three or four hundred feet and then traversed to the ridge on an exposed ledge system that joins the ridge just west of the "Four Aces".

I've summited Ypsilon 5 more times since by various other routes.

My 2nd climb of Ypsilon, Chris's 1st. Used some oxygen after Chris's last experience on Mt Toll. Were able to burn up the mountain beating the approaching storms.

My hiking buddies and I attempted the Mummy Mania, or Mummy Marathon as we call it. We didn't quite finish because my friend fell on some snow on the saddle between Ypsilon and Fairchild and broke his arm. We made a group decision not to climb anymore and bushwacked many miles to the Lawn Lake Trailhead. If that wasn't enough, we got hailed on for over an hour and saw a bear. Someday, I would like a rematch with the Mummy's.

Great climb. Middle section was a pitch of wasy mixed climbing (M3ish?) and the rest was easy couloir climbing. Great solo climb if you feel good on mixed ground.

Peak #3 of our Mummy Mania trip. Did this with pksander. Long, but fun day. The Y couloir looked sweet... need to come back for that...

Climbed as part of Chapin, Chiquita Ypsilon traverse. Had all three summits to myself. Very windy up there. Met a few others on the way down who had turned back.

ktiffany22Route Climbed: Old Fall River Road Date Climbed: Sept 2002  Sucess!


This was my first ever hike in Colorado. Having come from KS less than a week before, can you say: "NEED OXYGEN?!" Seriously, it kicked my butt from the get-go... my competitive drive kept me trekkin. We first summited Mount Chapin, then Chiquita, then Ypsilon. The group started 20 strong, was 18 after Chapin, and was only 10 by the time we hit Ypilson. Yep, I wasn't the only one from SEA LEVEL in the crew! As I look back at this day, I laugh. I hiked in normal tennis shoes, and CARRIED (no pack) 2 nalgene bottles. Yep, I've come a LONG way baby! Enjoy it!

Ypsilon isn't the most fun we had during Mummy Mania, but it is the peak I'm most likely to repeat. I must get to Spectacle Lakes someday!

The clouds broke after descending from Chiquita and afforded some cool views of Ypsilon, but the clouds returned when we were 10 minutes from the summit and didn't break up for about 2 hours. There was about 2-3 inches of fresh snow on and around the summit above 13,000 feet or so.

Reached the summit, along with Chapin and Chiquita, as part of a week long trip climbing in CO. Very worthwhile half day hike. Great views of the entire park!
